government overreach

Integrity Crumbles within the “Nixonian” Obama Administration

This past week brought forth a deluge of breaking news stories regarding scandalous behavior within various agencies and departments of the Obama Administration. They all seem to point to the same thing: government overreach. Furthermore, they all have been earning Obama a litany of Nixon comparisons.

In case you missed them, here’s my (link fest!) summary of events:

1) Last week’s Benghazi revelations were twofold:

Resolution to Stop President’s Overreach Introduced by Tom Rice

Some of us assume that the United States Constitution is strong enough of a document to ensure that the Executive branch does not overstep its authority, but several House Republicans do not seem to think President Barack Obama got the message.

A new resolution that has been introduced by Rep. Tom Rice (R-SC) would target the President for, amongst other things, allowing a year extension to health care policies terminated as a result of the implementation of Obamacare. Republicans co-sponsoring this resolution includes Reps. Steve Stockman (R-TX), James Lankford (R-OK) and Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA), who claimed that “we have a president who once taught the Constitution who has now forgotten the Constitution.”

According to Rep. Candice Miller (R-MI), another co-sponsor of the “Stop This Overreaching Presidency Act (STOP),” nobody is entitled to rule by fiat. The Michigan conservative decided to co-sponsor the resolution “because I have watched this president overreach.”

Republican Study Committee’s chairman Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) said that the American people have been insulted by this administration for its willingness to write laws without Congress.

“Our country rejects the concept of dictatorship,” said Scalise.

Some of Obama’s doings tackled by this motion would be reversed if the resolution advances, including the president’s end to part of the welfare work requirements, enactment of the DREAM Act and the delay of the employer mandate.
